Rapper Gucci Mane was arrested one day after he was released from jail. He was arrested for assaulting a man in Harlem Nights Atlanta nightclub with a Champaign bottle. Victim of Mane’s assault is a US military soldier, who told the press that all he wanted to do is to get a picture with the rapper. Soldier was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital , where he received ten stitches.

Later on controversial picture went viral on the internet. It shows that Gucci Mane telling the judge “B*tch I might be” when asked if guilty. This picture is totally fake and somebody used Photoshop to make this image. The problem with it is if FOX actually had this picture on LIVE television , they would most likely censor the word B*TCH , which is not censored on the particular picture.

BOSTON BOMBING 2013 On April 15 2013 Boston Marathon became the target for terrorists. Two bombs exploded killing 3 and injuring 183 people. Suspects are two Chechen brothers Tamerlan and Dzokhar Tsarnaev. Tamerlan was killed by Boston police during the shootout while Dzokhar was wounded and was taken to hospital. A week before the bombing FOX released the new episode of “Family Guy” called “Turban Cowboy”. In that episode main character Peter wins Boston Marathon fox-pulls-family-guy-episodeby killing people. over-boston-marathon-jokefamily-guy-epizoda-povucenaLater on Peter be2013-04 zbog-slicnosti-bostonskomcomes friends with a tragedijom-clanak-540696 terrorist . FOX removed that episode from their website and from HULU. Was it just a coincidence ? Or did Family Guy know about the bombing? One part of the episode shows how Peter makes phone call which causes explosion he does that twice just like Boston Marathon bombing 2 explosions . turban-cowboy-family-guyshow-weird-boston-bombing -prediction-joke-buildsfrenzy/#axzz2REY1cQJc


Again somehow people try to blame this on Hip Hop, saying that Dzokhar was good boy

and student until he started to listen to Hip Hop.

LADY PINK , FEMALE TAGGER Lady Pink was born in Ecuador, but raised in NYC. In 1979 she started writing graffiti and soon was well known as the only female capable of competing with the boys in the graffiti subculture. Pink painted subway trains from the years 19791985. In 1982 she had a starring role the motion picture "Wild Style". That role and her other significant contributions to graffiti have made her a cult figure in the hip-hop subculture. While still in high school she was already exhibiting paintings in art galleries, and at the age of 21 had her first solo show at the Moore College of Art. Pink knew that graffiti wasn't for the weak-hearted. “You’ve got to be strong , carry your own point, have a lot of endurance ,a lot of nerve. You cant go hysterical and run screaming”. As a leading participant in the rise of graffiti-based art, Lady Pink's canvases have entered important art collections such as those of the Whitney Museum, the MET in New York City, the Brooklyn Museum and the Groningen Museum of Holland. She has established herself in the fine arts world, and her paintings are highly prized by collectors. Today, Lady Pink continues to create new paintings on canvas that express her unique personal vision. She also shares her 30 years of experience with teens by holding mural workshops and actively lecturing to college students throughout the Northeast.
